10 And behold, a woman comes to meet him,
(A)Dressed as a prostitute and cunning of heart.
11 She is (B)boisterous and rebellious,
Her (C)feet do not remain at home;
12 She is now in the streets, now (D)in the public squares,
And (E)lurks by every corner.
13 So she seizes him and kisses him,
[a]And with a (F)brazen face she says to him:
14 [b]I was due to offer (G)peace offerings;
Today I have (H)paid my vows.
15 Therefore I have come out to meet you,
To seek your presence diligently, and I have found you.
